6 SURE hot-weather
hits: Use straw-
berry ice cream
with crushed strawber-
ries over it on top of
angel food cake that is a
day old. Another good
dessert is coffee ice cream
with chocolate sauce.
Vanilla with raspberries
is a big favorite.
DIFFERENT:Soak
slices of bacon in
evaporated milk
overnight in the refriger-
ator. Drain, flour and fry
in butter or margarine.
Saut6 bananas or slices of
tomatoes in the drip-
pings, adding more fat if
necessary; serve for Sun-
day morning breakfast.
JELLIED to-
 mato ring filled
with avocado
slices or cubes is attrac-
tive as the main course of
a summer luncheon or
Sunday supper. Season
the avocado with lemon
and onion juices and salt.
Pass Russian dressing and
hot cheese biscuits.
REAL June des-
sert: Carefully
fold 3 cups of
ripe strawberries into i
cup cream whipped,
sweetened with sugar,
flavored with sherry.
Serve in tall stem glasses.
Garnish tops with crum-
bled cake or macaroons.
Chill in refrigerator.
7 DRESS up small
plain sugar cook-
ies. With a pastry
tube rim the edge of each
with butter frosting and
place a bit of jelly or iam
in the center. Excellent
to serve with tea or with
any chilled fruit beverage.
Cookies may be home-
made or packaged ones.
FOR the class
picnic: Prepare
lemonade for o
this way. First make
sirup by boiling 8 cups
sugar with 4 cups water 5
minutes. Add 4 quarts
chipped ice, 4 cups lemon
juice and i gallon water
or part carbonated water
or ginger ale if desired.
TENDER and
flavorsome:
Over seasoned
veal cutlets or chops in
shallow casserole pour to-
mato ketchup. Top each
with slice onion, slice
lemon, short strip bacon;
add water to cover bot-
tom of pan. Bake at 32.
degrees F., i3Y to 2 hours.
POSSIBILITIES
in cooking po-
tatoes are end-
less. Try a potato-pepper
partnership: Parboil
green pepper shells io
minutes, fill with pota-
toes creamed in cheese
sauce (white sauce with
cheese added). Bake at 400
degrees F., 20 minutes.
1 SERVE small glasses
of tomato puree,
fresh or canned,
chilled and seasoned with
salt and a little prepared
horse-radish, as an appe-
tizer at lunch or dinner on
a warm day. Crisp crack-
ers are an agreeable ac-
companiment. Puree is
tomato pulp and juice.
CHICKEN       casse-
role: Roll pieces
of chicken in sea-
soned flour; brown in hot
fat or salad oil. Place in
the casserole. Pour over
chicken i can mushroom
soup and bake slowly un-
til chicken is tender, de-
pending of course on age
and size of chicken.
SANDWICHES:
Cut raisin bread
in oblong slices;
put together with cream
cheese, seasoned, towhich
have been added chopped
California walnuts. A
good filling for nut-bread
sandwiches is quince jelly
mixed with a few bits
of candied ginger.
SALAD thoughts:
Try Waldorf salad
made with June
apples and for variety add
cubes of canned pineap-
ple, drained. Into a green
salad just before serving
toss 3 or 4 very crisp
pretzels crushed. Just
that different touch in
each case makes a hit.
GRAND sum-
mer dessert:
Place raspberry
ice in sherbet glasses.
Around the edges arrange
large black cherries, fresh
or canned, pitted. Sprin-
kle with shredded toasted
almonds. Or serve ice in
a big bowl surrounded
with the cherries.

had a new way to
use roast beef and
mashed potatoes when
left over? Spread slices of
cold roast beef with pre-
pared mustard, then with
hot mashed potatoes.
Coat with flour, egg and
crumbs and brown thor-
oughly in hot fat.
9 TIE the minerals
in by cooking
shredded new car-
rots in parchmenr piper.
First season them with
butter or margai Jne. salt,
pepper and a dC4b of nor-
meg; add 3 t-lespoons of
water. Cook in the oven
or in boiling waier till
vegetable is tender.
IF your family are
gingerbread fans
and you make
gingerbread ofren, use soft
penuche fudge full of
chopped nuts or dates as
a topping when warm.
Did you know that ein-
gerbread is delicious with
ice cream, especially va-
nilla, coffee, chocolate?
DELECTABLE
flavors: On the
browned fat
coating the hot roast beef
grate a little fresh horse-
radish just before carry-
ing to the table. When
frying chicken use i
whole peeled onion in the
skillet. Remove it when
serving the chicken.

egg whites stiff,
add i tablespoon sugar,
fold in i cup sweetened
applesauce made by
cooking June apples in

3 WHEN it's cherry
time you can make a
superfine pie by using
half sweet and half sour
cherries in it. And is
there anything better
than a hot cherry cobbler
served with hard sauce or
cream?  Pit the cherries
before using them in
either of these desserts.
TWO    summer
desserts: Serve
sections of grape-
fruit with mint ice in
class cuos. Could be used
as an at)peuizer also. Fill
merin. ue shells with
cbillkd lmon fillng such
as you make for pie, top
wirh sweerened whipped
cream before serving.
WHEN raspber-
ries are at their
best in your lo-
cality and you want a
wonderful dessert serve
them with cream into
which honey has been
blended, i tablespoon
ho>ney to Y2 cup cream.
Cream may be whipped
or not as desired.
SUNDAE at
home: Boil Y2

and water 5 minutes, add
